New Delhi, July 17: Months after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal threw Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan out of his party, now he is saying that he will be happy if dissident AAP leaders return to the party.
As per an IndiaToday report, "Agar aisa hua to bahut achcha hoga (If it happens, it will be very good)," Kejriwal said in an exclusive interview with TV Today Consulting Editor Rajdeep Sardesai.
AAP had earlier sacked dissident leader Yogendra Yadav as chief spokesperson of the party and also removed rebel leaders Prashant Bhushan, Anand Kumar as spokespersons while announcing a new 20-member panel packed with Arvind Kejriwal loyalists to interact with the media.
Before that, AAP expelled rebel leaders Prashant Bhusan, Yogendra Yadav and two others for anti-party activities and "gross indiscipline", two days after issuing a show-cause notice to them. The decision to sack them from the party was taken by the national disciplinary committee which said as it was not satisfied with the response it got to the show-cause notice.
The removal of Yadav, Bhushan and Kumar came four days after they were expelled as National Executive members during the partys National Council meeting after being accused of indulging in anti-party activities. Bhushan was on Sunday removed as the chief of partys disciplinary committee. Bhushan and Yadav were sacked from the partys Political Affairs Committee of the party on March 4.
